WWE Welcomes First Arab Woman & Kuwaiti Man

In non-movie news, WWE made history by contracting two new Arab wrestlers: Nasser Alruwayeh from Kuwait and Shadia Bsesio from Jordan.

I predict they’ll both get overshadowed, like everyone does, by Triple H’s majestic beard.
As someone with a longstanding, if morbid, fascination with wrestling, I find this news exciting in the extreme. After having written a two-part analysis of pro-wrestling Middle Easterners for Front Row Central, I can only hope this serves as a sign that WWE will outgrow the racism that suffuses professional wrestling. I doubt it, but hey, no law against hoping!
